NBA FREE PICK: Take San Antonio. According to latest NBA trends, San Antonio is 5-1 ATS last 6 road games and 4-1 ATS last 5 in this series.
The Spurs are looking to end this series and take a nice long break so their older stars can rest as they won't have to play in the NBA Finals until June 6. Spurs head coach GregPopovich did rest two of his stars in Tim Duncan and Tony Parker in the first quarter, but that was more of a benching because the Spurs turned it over five time in the early going. Yet they came back to beat Memphis for the second straight time in overtime, to take a commanding 3-0 lead. They rallied from 18 down in this one to force overtime and complete dominate the Grizzlies, who looked down and beaten. The key for San Antonio has been the defense on Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. Duncan has been helped by Tiago Splitter and Matt Bonner, and that allowed him to concentrate on offense. Duncan had 24 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in Game 3. The Spurs are also motivated by blowing that 2-0 lead to Oklahoma City last year, losing four straight. They have the experience and killer instinct, while Memphis lacks an offensive weapon on the backcourt.
